Lindsay Davenport (USA) ranked 1# in 1998, '99, 2000, 01', 02', 04' AND 2005!!!

That is absolutely remarkable:

1998: became No. 1-ranked player on October 12 until...
1999: after the Australian Open. Then regained her 1# status after her win in Wimbledon. Only for a few weeks.
2000: After the Ericcson Open (where she lost the final in straight sets to Hingis) she regained the 1# ranking. She lost it in the Family Circle Cup (I think)
2001: YEC regained that 1# spot after winning 7-6 in the third against Clijsters. She injured herself there, so she lost her ranking in...
2002: Australian Open. Was out for 8 months.
2004: October 18 regained her 1# ranking and continues to be so until
2005: who knows....

Over 40 weeks as the Number 1 Player in the World in a 7 year period

Not bad for a player with a grand total of 3 majors and 2 other finals at the majors during that span...and even, what 2 finals at the YEC?, Impressive!!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

GS '98 '99 '00 '01 '02 '03 '04
AO SF SF W SF DNP 4R SF
FO SF QF 1R DNP DNP 4R 4R
WM QF W F SF DNP QF SF

Add to that 1 YEC won and two finals, plus over 30 titles, almost all tier II or higher. Yes, impressive indeed.

I guess when you´re the media darling those stats would be enough to make you seem a deserving no.1....

Yet funningly I know AT LEAST one other player who posted even better stats than those during that span, that has been critisized for her long tenure as no.1...funny isn´t it?

Always bet on black!

Lindsay deserved her #1 spot in 1998, 1999 and 2000 and sorry to say, if you argue that you are an idiot. Everything after that is debatable, but then again, her reign was not that long in that time. It's not comparable to Hingis, if that's what you're getting at.

Everything after 2000 is NOT debatable.....no majors is no majors. Was so for Martina H in 2000, so it is so for Lindsay anno 2001 and 2004 too. ( who´s 2000 was much much better than Lindsay´s 2004)

Can't you just congratulate Lindsay?! What is your big problem? It's not like you've even done anything comparable or similar, so who are YOU to judge her success?
This is a positive thread, so please refrain from bringing your negativism in here. Fuck off!

Oh just shut it bandabou, every positive thread about Linday you're there wasting your time, moan, moan, moan, "she hasn't reached a major final" "Nobody remembers her since the USO 2000" :retard: Just give her a break, stop moaning

Women's tennis sucks.

Well, Davenport is okay but I doubt she deserve the #1 ranking.. If u ask me, no one deserve the #1 ranking this year as there wasn't anyone who was consistent.. Now that blank sharapova if she beats Serena tonight I could already here all the bandwagon jumpers saying she deserve #1 already.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Well even if she had accomplished that, it's still not good enough. According to him Lindsay's 1999 wasn't that impressive either.

Easy, easy....it IS an achievement. But I just hate how American media makes it seem like her 2004 or 2001 year without a major were more deserving of the no.1 than Martina´s 2000....that´s all.

Always bet on black!
